Active Youth for Europe

The project was created with the aim to grow active European Citizens from within. The project aims that young people can become comfortable and empowered enough to take an active role as part of European citizenship, and can create creative possible solutions among themselves on international or national level on topics which are concerned. New experiences, ideas and competences will give us a chance to apply new practices in their communities.

Project Goals and Objectives

  • opportunity to express and share thoughts on common topics concerning youth;
  • space of sharing realities: experiences and good practices of challenges and obstacles youth face on an international level, as well to discuss possible solutions;

  • provide knowledge on different topics through non formal education;
  • increase competences like creativity, teamwork, finding solutions, problem solving as well as give young people an opportunity to work in a diverse environment with people from other cultures and backgrounds;
